Gian Lorenzo BERNINI (1598-1680) Academy of a man Sanguine with light white chalk highlights 56 x 42,5 cm Bears on the mount a cartouche with an attribution to Pierre Puget Provenance : - Private collection, Compiègne Expert : Cabinet de BAYSER - 01 47 03 49 87 (drawing visible at the expert until March 17th) The work will be delivered with a certificate authorizing its export out of France. This drawing will be delivered with a certificate authorizing its exportation outside of France. Our drawing is very close to the academies of similar dimensions preserved in the Uffizi Museum in Florence (in Selected drawings of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Ann Sutherland Harris, Dover Publications, NY, 1977, cat. 4 & 5), as well as to another academy preserved in the Teyler Museum from the collection of Christine of Sweden (Regteren van Altena, Les dessins italiens de la reine Christine de Suède, Stockholm, 1966, repr. Fig.75). Bernini's academic figures are inspired by the power of Michelangelo's ignudi. The bodies appear gigantic because they are as if curled up in the space defined by the sheet. They would go far beyond the imposed frame if they unfolded their limbs. The contours are drawn with numerous small, superimposed, discontinuous sanguine lines. The bodies thus emit a contained power, and the treatment of the contours renders the vibration of the flesh. The rocks and vegetation are contrasted by a treatment of broad and vigorous hatching. Without being directly preparatory, these academies can be compared to the allegorical beings representing the rivers of the four parts of the world in the fountain in Piazza Navona. The fountain in Piazza Navona was made for Innocent X from 1648. We are grateful to Mrs Ann Sutherland Harris, who confirmed the attribution of the drawing to Bernini.
